This was on Facebook, As you all know we are all thinking of Stacy! As she goes thru her chemo treatments, she is Mary Lou Benson's Daughter.
October is Breast Cancer awareness month

Well, I really don't know what to tell ya...................The mgrs. Tricia and Ron were fired as I understand............but........they're still here, in the office.. go figure. Hopefully we will get some new ones soon.

We are still having hot weather. It's supposed to be Fall but doesn't feel like it.
Bobby and I are getting some pecans falling from our tree, which is always in Oct. - Nov. when it's typically starting to get cool.  A cold front is to come in Monday evening and the highs in the upper 60's, what a change that will be

 So Summer like temps all week with Winter like temps coming Monday, with cold blowing winds,
don't know how long it will last.

The flea market is now open. I went last Sat. and there wasn't many there and quite a few of the venders had not set up yet. Tomarrow there should be more venders and more folks going to buy!

The palm trees are finally getting trimmed....a picture of the park, kind of cloudy but it turned out pretty good

Our hot tub is being painted, they are hoping the special coating will last.

Starting soon Yoga classes on Mon. Wed. and  Fri. There's 4 or 5 gals doing the aqua sizes each morning. Tic has been going on nightly , 2 tables  of  6, and a table of 5 last night after  our Happy Hour. Next Wednesday we celebrate a bunch of Birthdays and Anniversaries in October with hot dogs provided and we will bring a dish to share, Fred Goldsberry will play music for us.

Jim and Darlene Ales Son, Mike passed away. I don't have an obituary yet, but will post it if I receive one.
Darlene Bryant doing very well after having a pace maker put in.
There was no one down to provide donuts this morning so Del Telfor went to get some, with a few chipping in.

Carmen Bernier  and her Mom Doris furnished donuts this morning.
Well, it seems we were pretty darn lucky we didnt get huge amounts of rain. We did get a very good rain but not like McAllen/ Edinburgh got. There was so much more flooding again. Even Harlingen got some big rains that we did not get. We had just enough!!! Now we are having fairly nice weather.
the lawn care people working like crazy to catch up, but doing a good job of it. Also our maintenance men hard at work, I could not believe how fast the grass has been growing from all the rain.

I was talking with Nathan yesterday morning. Just mentioned we came up for early morning coffee and no one was here. I tried the new code for the door to the card room but it didnt work for me, so we went outside and I tried it again while Nathan was standing there and it worked. New for us...anyone with the code can come into the card room at any hour....day or night, the double doors to the lobby will remain locked until 6:30. So early morning coffee drinkers will be in the card room. Oh, another change will be the pkg. pick up. If you have a pkg. that comes in they will be put in the card room on a table in the back on the North end. This will start Oct. 15th. I think I mentioned before the air con is set to run continually day and night. No turning it on or off and no timers.

If you would like a new R.V.E. t-shirt, the new price will be $5.00 not $6.00 as I had previously said.
they come in lots of pretty colors.

We had a nice Social Hour last night, the new Assistant managers came. We celebrated Doris's 93rd birthday, (Carmen Berniers Mother) with cake and icecream. A big thank you to Carmen.

There are two cards up to sign...one for Farrell Sirovy, his Father passed away and a card for Mary Lou Benson's Daughter who was recently dianosed with breast cancer

Obituary for Josie Miller, former Winter resident of our park. I think the last year they were here was in 2010.

Josie Miller, 84, of Breckenridge, MN, passed away Tuesday, Sept 18, 2018, at Pioneer Cottages in Breckenridge.

The funeral service will be held at 11 am Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, at Breckenridge Lutheran Church with a visitation one hour prior to the service.  Pastor Mark Manning will officiate and the burial will be held at Riverside Cemetery, Breckenridge.

Josephine Marion Andel, affectionately known as "Josie", was born in Neilson Township (rural Breckenridge), MN on Oct 7, 1933,to Andrew and Elizabeth Andel.  She attended school in Breckenridge and on Nov 4, 1949, she was united in marriage to Robert L. Miller at Breckenridge Lutheran Church.  The couple made their home in the Kent, MN area until 1993 when they moved to Breckenridge.

Josie taught Sunday School at Breckenridge Lutheran Church where she was a member for many years.  She also  belonged to the Sarah Circle and spent many hours volunteering for the Kent Senior citizens, St. Francis Hospital Auxiliary and the Wahpeton Carousel.  She cherished her family and enjoyed watching her grandchildren play sports throughout their high school and college careers.  Josie was a fan of the local softball teams, cheering on the Breckenridge Cowboys and Cowgirls (she was active in the Touchdown Club), and she rarely missed a Minnesota Twins baseball game.  When she wasn't attending a sporting event, Josie could be found working on sewing or putting together new craft projects.  Josie and Bob enjoyed traveling and they spent 15 winter in Texas.  Se carried a creative, energetic, and humorous personality that will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Sept. 14th

Thanks to Rexroads for furnishing the donuts this morning.

We have a couple cards up to sign, one for Craig Daves, new knee, and one for Irene Quail, she had minor surgery on her leg.

We have had over 6.5 inches of rain this week, about all in a few hours but now today and tomarrow expecting huge rains again here. So there is already flooding of some peoples homes  from the other day and now with this rain in the next few days will be another disastrous storm, thank God our Park does not get flooded , some sheds last time on the Northeast end had water get in their sheds. Around town the city has been doing what they can to help prevent streets and different neighborhoods from flooding, but some areas they can't do much about all the water. With the ground saturated I expect some awful water damage again.

I don't often publish recipes on my blog but theses pickles are so good and easy to make...they're the ones Henry Hryniw loves.
